2003 年 4 月 1 日，我到 Amazon 網路書店 在 Books 範圍內搜尋 math education 這兩個字， 獲得 1842 筆書籍資料，我花了五天時間一一瀏覽這 1842 本書籍的基本資料、 業者自己提供的內容簡介和 Amazon 用戶上傳的讀者書評， 擷取了 364 筆書籍資料，而後又仔細閱讀、比對，刪除大致上並不必要的 (例如談美國本土特殊教育問題的書籍)， 整理出來 298 筆書籍資料，就是這一份報告的內容。 目前這個版本，只整理出來 98 冊
那 1842 本書籍的確龐大，但是其實頗有重複，而且有些書籍明顯是一個系列的教科書， 若再細分年級或等級，就變成了更多本獨立的書籍資料。 我並沒有將同系列內的所有書籍都收入此報告。
那幾天的一個上午， 我請黃子倩到 Amazon 搜尋了數學教育類的暢銷電腦軟體或 CD Titles， 她用 Microsoft Word 整理資料，我不願意在此網站提供需要特定商業軟體的文件， 因此將它轉換成網頁，附於後。
2004 年 5 月，我再度打開這個檔案，仔細再整理一遍。 這次的工作重點是：
- 盡量為每一本書找到說明文字，或者自己寫一點中文簡介； 有些書籍在 Amazon 上面沒有說明、也沒有讀者意見， 所以只好訴諸於 Google 搜尋。而 Google 並不令人失望，總是可以提供更多訊息。 謝秀宏幫我找了 65 冊書籍的說明，洪雅齡幫我找了 4 份軟體的說明，
因為這些書籍或軟體都是英文的， 國內的讀者如果對它們有興趣，想必就能讀英文。 因此，這裡節錄的簡介，也就沒有必要翻譯成中文。 但是，為了提高閱讀效率，我設法將所有書籍分類， 每個類別的標題和簡介，就用中文表達了。 而個別書籍的說明文字基本上全是直接剪貼自 Amazon 網站的原文， 若我有補充說明，就用中文書寫。
書籍和軟體都沒有附上 Amazon 的網頁連結， 這是當時整理時候的疏忽。但是，只要那本書或那份軟體還在， 相信讀者進入 Amazon 網站之後，簡單地搜尋一番就能很快找到它。

Mind Power Math: High School
by The Learning Company (CD-ROM)
This set of six CDs offers high school students basic and useful practice in algebra 1, algebra 2, statistics, geometry, trigonometry and calculus. In the Algebra 1 CD, for example, students choose from 12 chapters and pick a sub topic. After a written (and pictorial) demonstration of the concept (e.g. ratio and proportion), students answer 10 questions to show comprehension. Hint and Solution icons lead to useful and straightforward help, and general progress is described after ech section. All things considered, although dry in format and somewhat lacking in depth, this handy set of CDs offers understandable explanations of difficult subjects.
Mind Power Math: Middle School
by Riverdeep (CD-ROM)
Based on Riverdeep's online content, this program slowly doles out tutorials on fractions, decimals, geometry, statistics, pre-algebra and algebra. As the content was originally delivered online, the CD version runs through your browser, making it somewhat awkward and clunky. The interactive lessons are informative, however, showing kids how to manipulate the numbers, but these seem to start at a level too high for most struggling math students. When learning to calculate percents, for example, basic elementary concepts are not reviewed. Rather, students are thrown right into tough content like "What percent of 600 is 132?". The lessons are straightforward and relatively easy to understand, and the activities involve lots of word problems and real-life situations. The workouts could offer more time practicing concepts learned (e.g. in rote fashion), although the number of question sequences offered is plentiful. This set might be a nice supplement to middle school curriculum, especially home schoolers, but may be too advanced (and lacking in practice exercises) for students who need a boost.

書名 Math Matters: The Links Between High School Curriculum, College Graduation, and Earnings 作者 by Heather Rose, Julian R. Betts (Paperback - July 2001) 由 Public Policy Institute of California 發行，在 Amazon 銷售排行還不錯 (56 萬左右)。This study examines the relationship between taking advanced math courses in high school and labor force earnings 10 years after graduation. The authors hypothesize that students who take higher-level math courses are likely to earn more in the labor market for two reasons. First, a richer high school curriculum increases a student's ability to gain admission to, and graduate from, college. Second, more-advanced courses increase a person's cognitive ability and all-around productivity.

ISBN: 0309070368 Both a simple summary of some recent research in the cognitive sciences and an argument for how teaching should be done. About one third of the text is taking up with issues in mathematics and science teaching.
書名 Math Worlds: Philosophical and Social Studies of Mathematics and Mathematics Education 作者 by Sal Restivo, et al (Paperback - April 1993) SUNY Series in Science, Technology, and Society. Chapters on the philosophy of mathematics illustrate the growing influence of a pragmatic view in a field traditionally dominated by Platonic perspectives. In a section on mathematics, politics, and pedagogy, the emphasis is on politics and values in mathematics education.
書名 A Practical Approach to Using Learning Styles in Math Instruction 作者 by Ruby Bostick Midkiff, Rebecca Davis Thomasson (Paperback - October 1996) 所謂 learning-styles-based teaching 就是 challenges the traditional instructional process of lecture/discussion in college teaching and describe the theory, practice, and research that support a wider variety of approaches to better accommodate the learning-style preferences of each student.
書名 How Students Learn: History, Math & Science in the Classroom 作者 by National Research Council (Editor), National Academy Press (July 2004). ISBN: 0309074339 看來是一本論文集。 How do you get a fourth-grader excited about history? How do you even begin to persuade high school students that mathematical functions are relevant to their everyday lives? In this volume, practical questions that confront every classroom teacher are addressed using the latest exciting research on cognition, teaching, and learning.
[This book] builds on the discoveries detailed in last year's bestselling How People Learn. Now, these findings are presented in a way that teachers can use immediately, to revitalize their work in the classroom for even greater effectiveness.
Organized for utility, the book explores how the principles of learning can be applied in teaching history, science, and math topics at three levels: elementary, middle, and high school. Leading educators explain in detail how they developed successful curricula and teaching approaches, presenting strategies that serve as models for curriculum development and classroom instruction. Their recounting of personal teaching experiences lends strength and warmth to this volume.
The book explores the importance of balancing students' knowledge of historical fact against their understanding of concepts, such as change and cause, and their skills in assessing historical accounts. It discusses how to build straightforward science experiments into true understanding of scientific principles. And it shows how to overcome the difficulties in teaching math to generate real insight and reasoning in math students. It also features illustrated suggestions for classroom activities.

書名 On Evaluating Curricular Effectiveness: Judging the Quality of K-12 Mathematics Evaluations 作者 The National Academies Press, 2004, 350 頁 National Academies Press 是美國國家科學院 The National Academies 出版部， 因為其主旨是服務，所以號稱有 3,000 部出版品可以「線上閱讀」。 包括這一本在內，網址在 http://www.nap.edu/books/0309092426/html 大致看來，所謂線上閱讀的版本是書籍掃描之圖檔， NAP 也提供未經校對的 OCR 文字檔。
這本書的來歷，是 National Academies 裡面的 National Research Council (NRC) 底下一個部門 (想像它是國科會之下的一個處好了) Division of Behavioral and Social Sciences and Education (行為與社會科學和教育部門) 成立的 Center for Education (CFE, 教育研究中心) 麾下之數學教育理事會 (Mathematical Sciences Education Board, MSEB) 組成了一個委員會 Committee for a Review of the Evaluation Data on the Effectiveness of NSF-Supported and Commercially Generated Mathematics Curriculum Materials， 從名稱看來，是要評論或再審受國科會資助或者由企業發展的數學教材之評鑑資料。 這本書是上述委員會的報告。
Center for Education (CFE) 的宗旨是 The Center for Education of the National Academies was formed in 1999 as the locus for education activities in the National Academies. As a unit of the Division of Behavioral and Social Sciences and Education, the Center's mission is to promote evidence-based policy analysis that is both responsive and anticipatory: responsive to government's and other stakeholders' program and research interests; and anticipatory of long-term challenges, opportunities, and needs that affect the future of education research and policy priorities. 她的首頁在 http://www7.nationalacademies.org/cfe， 她自稱其功能 is ideally situated to initiate programs that can make a difference in education. By engaging the unique strength of the National Academies to bring together national, state, and local leaders, the Center is poised to address critical national issues in education research, policy, and practice.
而數學教育理事會 (MSEB) 是 CFE 麾下次級組織， 首頁在 http://www7.nationalacademies.org/mseb， 其自陳目前的任務是 to provide national leadership and guidance for policies, programs, and practices supporting the improvement of mathematics education at all levels and for all members of our society. We are actively pursuing several initiatives that focus on the learning, instruction, and assessment of mathematics; equity in mathematics; attracting and retaining students in mathematics majors and in mathematically intensive careers; capacity building and professionalization of mathematics education; evidence of effectiveness in mathematics education; and the public perception of mathematics, mathematics learning, and mathematics teaching. 她的建議、研究發現，多以報告形式出版，許多報告還提供電子版本。 以下網址列出目前 MSEB 所有的出版品，每一冊都附簡介： http://www7.nationalacademies.org/mseb/MSEB_Publications_List.html
書名 What's Happening in Math Class? Vol. 1: Envisioning New Practices Through Teacher Narratives 作者 by Deborah Schifter (Editor) 1996.

書名 What's Happening in Math Class? Vol. 2: Reconstructing Professional Identities 作者 by Deborah Schifter (Editor) Teachers College Pr; 1996 Teachers College Press 出版的 School Reform 系列叢書之一。 9 篇由 K--6 年級教師撰寫的敘述 (narratives)， 敘述數學教師在「新教學法」之下被期待擔任的各種角色。 這兩冊 (一套) 書，可能是站在建構論的基礎上所作的敘述。 有一份 PDF 文件，是 1997 年寫的書評： zdm976r3.pdf
書名 The Great Curriculum Debate: How Should We Teach Reading and Math? 作者 by Tom Loveless (Editor) (Paperback - January 2002) This book includes contributions from distinguished scholars from both sides of the debate, as well as influential nonpartisans. The proponent of "whole language" and "phonics" present their opposing views on reading. Advocates and opponents of "NCTM math reform"— the agenda of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM)—discuss their differing opinions about math. Although the authors disagree on many of the most important aspects of learning, they agree on one point: the school curriculum matters. Decisions made now about the content of reading and mathematics will have long term consequences, not only for students and schools, but for society as a whole.
書名 How Social and Emotional Development Add Up: Getting Results in Math and Science Education (The Series on Social Emotional Learning) 作者 by Norris M.

書名 Parent Guide with Review, Math 1, Algebra 1, 2nd. ed. 作者 by Tom Sallee, et al, CPM Educational Program, (Paperback - July 2000) 這其實是美國加州 CPM (College Preparatory Mathematics 為大學準備的數學課程) 計畫所設計的 四學年數學教科叢書的一環，這四年的教程可以在 7--12 年級實施。 這套教科叢書包括學生用的課本 (還同時出版英文與西班牙文版)、 老師用的教師手冊、以及家長手冊。 這裡引述的是家長手冊。所以並不只這一本，讀者可以深入搜尋。 CPM 的首頁在 http://www.cpm.org。 此計畫的主要研究人員都來自加州，執行長 Mr. Hoey 在沙加緬度高中執教 30 年， 它出版的教科書由任教於加州大學系統內的數學家 (更細節地說，是來自於 UC Davis 和 CSU Sacramento) 和有多年教學經驗的中學教師 (共 90 多人) 合作寫作。 一篇針對 CPM 計畫與這套教科書的評論文章，放在 http://www.enc.org 之內。 以下是四學年課程之概述：
此外，CPM 也出版了 FFA1 和 FFA2 (Foundations for Algebra, Year 1 and Year 2) 給 6, 7 年級學生使用。
- Mathematics 1 focuses on topics such as writing, solving, and graphing equations as well as symbol manipulation. (類似傳統的 Algebra I 課程)
- Mathematics 2 focuses on geometric properties, spatial visualization, and conjecture and explanation. (類似傳統的 Geometry 課程)
- Mathematics 3 focuses on representation and modeling, intersections and systems, algorithms, and reasoning and communication. (類似傳統的 Algebra II 課程)
- Mathematics 4 focuses on concepts of calculus, analysis of models, trigonometry, and advanced functions. (類似傳統的 Mathematical Analysis/Pre-Calculus 課程)
但是，CPM 教科叢書中，只有家長手冊公開販售。 想要使用 CPM 教材的老師，還必須經過專門課程的教育，必須拿到執照， 才能使用這套教材。
